Calgary, AB (PRWEB) March 10, 2016
A Parent Media Co. Inc. (“APMC”) made the exciting announcement today that Kidoodle.TV has now launched globally into 145 countries through the Apple App Store and Google Play. Following in the steps of the great SVOD giants, APMC now boasts a global offering for its state-of-the art children’s SVOD service and has made it available to families around the world.
Additionally, as part of its mandate to bring great content to kids, APMC has partnered with impressive international content producers to help kids access new and exciting shows and educational experiences in countries around the world. From Internet sensation, Blippi, to international favorites like Kit^n^Kate, Kidoodle.TV is primed to be a favorite destination for kids, and more importantly, one that parents approve of due to its age-appropriate content, multiple options for parental controls, and increasing focus on educational and ‘soul developing’ content.
As APMC President, Michael Lowe states, “We want to motivate our families to do more than watch shows on their devices and central screens. We want them to learn from what they are watching, develop new skills and hobbies, move and sing along to the music, share their memories, and expand their horizons. That’s why we’ve sought out these talented groups to work with and we are proud to add their titles to our Kidoodle.TV line-up.”
APMC’s motivation to source unique content led to the exciting addition of Blippi –an online, kidSAFE-listed entertainer and family favorite with a large Internet following– to the Kidoodle.TV library. The addition of Blippi is also consistent with APMC’s continued objective to work with talented content producers interested in seeing their content for kids enjoyed within safe online environments.
According to Blippi’s creator and host, Stevin John, “What sparked my interest in making Kidoodle.TV a home for my children's show was that the app is ad-free, runs seamlessly, and only carries quality content. Being part of the Kidoodle.TV family has been nothing but amazing for ‘Blippi’.”
Blippi is now available to families worldwide through Kidoodle.TV, another mandate for APMC. “Acquiring global content rights is a huge priority for us. We will continue to focus on worldwide sourcing and licensing from both traditional and non-traditional partners. Our content team does the work for parents. We filter great quality shows for our families to engage with and to date, they’ve loved our picks,” says Jared Dielwart, Chief Content Officer for Kidoodle.TV.
As part of its foray into providing families with content that will benefit their long term well-being, APMC also made the unprecedented step of partnering with RoboGarden™ to provide kids with content that teaches them to code in popular computer languages.
“Creativity is the future for our kids and teaching kids to code means teaching kids to learn, think and problem solve in a very unique way. It also means growing a future for even the most beleaguered and isolated factions of society who only have access to the world economy via the Internet,” says co-founder Mohamed Elhabiby, P.Eng, PhD, MSc. and Vice President of Micro Engineering Tech Inc. ("METI").
Populating Kidoodle.TV with educational materials from extraordinary and inspiring educators and distributing those materials through the Kidoodle.TV platform and technology are key goals of APMC and Kidoodle.TV. “We could not be more pleased to be working with this very progressive team in an area that we believe is critical to the overall development and scholastic achievement of our children. Our common focus is to support kids and their futures by giving them access to opportunities to participate in the global arena and economy, and to enrich their lives,” says Lowe.
